Fashion earrings: It’s time to ditch your pair and rock a statement solo earring instead.

Fact: It used to be embarrassing to leave the other side of your gold hoops or little silver studs at home.

Now, it couldn’t be cooler. Good news for those of us who sleep through alarm clocks and only have five minutes to get ready in the morning.

From street style shots to fashion editorial inspired Tumblr accounts, the statement earring is the main focus in all the images, while on the A/W16 catwalk, it was all about the rise of architectural earrings.

One designer who realised that we are ditching the other side to our pair of earrings, and getting creative with how we are stacking jewels, is Dinny Hall.

The British jewellery designer has just launched The Singles Bar, a new season of earrings designed to work individually in true mismatched style, sold in her new London store (prices start at £50).

The designer gets playful with motifs too, including the lotus flower, bamboo, horns and tusks, stars and the quatrefoil- to make sure that your one solo earring makes a huge impact.
